Living in Ocala, Florida the Horse Capital of the World and having a lot of clients that ride horses, I’ve been noticing a regular pattern issue on their hair. The friction caused by the helmet on the hair causes breakage, frizz, and thinning. I want to share some tips on how to take care of your hair when using a helmet: These few tips can help to prevent your hair for damage or at least easy the struggle.
Helmet hair is a common term used to describe a hairstyle that is flattened or compressed due to wearing a helmet or other headgear, such as a cap or hat. It is a common issue for individuals who frequently engage in activities such as cycling, motorcycling, or skiing that require the use of a helmet or other head protection.
The problem occurs because the helmet compresses the hair against the scalp, which can cause it to become flattened, matted, or frizzy. When the helmet is removed, the hair may be difficult to style and can take on a shape that is unflattering or not the desired look.
To avoid helmet hair, there are a few things that can be done. One option is to wear a hair-friendly helmet, which is designed to minimize hair damage and reduce the risk of flattened or matted hair. Another option is to wear a hair net or wrap the hair in a scarf or bandana before putting on the helmet.
After removing the helmet, the hair can be revived by brushing or combing it out and using a volumizing product or dry shampoo to add texture and volume. It is also recommended to wash the hair as soon as possible to remove any sweat or dirt that may have accumulated under the helmet.
Overall, while helmet hair can be frustrating, it is a small inconvenience compared to the protection that a helmet provides during high-risk activities. Taking preventative measures and styling the hair afterwards can help to minimize its effects.
